Peach Days 2010

The 15 year old was asked by a Family Friend
to March in the Peach Days Parade in Full
Scout Uniform in Front of Gov. Herbert.

16 Scouts were asked and 3 showed up! YIKES!! That means that 13 didn't keep their word!

The 15 year old would probably have liked to
be on the Football Float with all his friends, but he is truely
a Good Scout and honored his word!!

I am so Very Proud that he Kept his word!

Our Family Aug. 20th 2010

For what ever reason, We can never have everyone
together all at once! (Our Grandson was with his dad on this day.)
We had a Great time all together! This time we chose to
have it be just us...
The Girls both voted to have it that way.
It was Great! We need to do it more often!!!

Jean's Funeral

Here we are at round 2.
Stunned is how we all were and still are!
It was very much a Groundhogs day
kind of thing! Very surreal!
I don't know where Chris was
for the center picture?
The weather was fitting for such a
sad occasion!
I have said it before,
Death needs to take a Vacation!

Do you Remember?

This picture was taken just earlier this year.
Who was to know it would be the last time
I would see Jean?
Jean is the shortest one in the picture.
They have the same configuration of
people as My Family.
The Brother in the Middle.

I have nothing but Great memories of these 3!
Nothing but Great memories of their Parents!

Jean is the Oldest of the First Generation of Grandchildren.
I am the Youngest....

So that means that I have now lost both of the Oldest on Both
sides of my Family..Quinta and Jean..
They were the beginning and I am the End..
I had not really thought about being the end..
What a strange thing to be!
Also.. Will I really be the end?
My Sister thinks she might live
for a long time...

I have wondered if I would ..( you know the be good to your Parents thing..) I was never very good at being very good!
Hated to be told what to do...(still don't like it!) My Siblings on the Other hand were like living with Nephi and Sam..
So you see all it leaves for me is Laman and Lemuel! (Well that is how it felt!) HA
So what are the odds of a Long life? Ha Ha

Something about them always reminded me of us.. my Brother and Sister and I..
So the Death of the oldest cousin has touched my heart in a way I had not expected!
I am Heart Broken and totally devastated ..
Just look at them! This is how they always seem.. Just HAPPY!

I am so Glad that I went to Kents Funeral.. Not just because he was a Great Guy.. But to see Jean again.
Time is passing fast.. It reminds me of the Song titled "BLINK" ..
Blink and you are 5.. Blink and you are 16.. Blink and you are 25 and so on.. How life really just flys and
how we need to really see and be in the present, because in a second you are going to Blink and the moment is gone.
(The song is a lot better than my words..)
Just try not to BLINK!

This year is full of Ups and Downs!

This has been the year of Death! But also, it will be the year of life!
My Mother, my Aunt, 2 cousins, a cousin's husband, A neighbor's Mother with whom I had had the opportunity to get to know, a Friend from my old neighborhood, a Family friend and neighbor from my child hood, must I go on??? I think you get the picture!!!!
I know that the Lord does not give you more than you can handle, but COME ON!!!! REALLY!!!
I am not SUPER MAN!! or Woman..! I have one Aunt on my Father's side and two Aunts that were married to Uncles that is left of that Group of People! These people need to hang in there for a while! My nerves are SHOT!!! I am sorry to say this but this type of stuff just sends me off to Dairy Queen! It is such a UNFIX ABLE problem!!! So comfort food (ICE CREAM!!) is my solace!

Now on the Flip side.. I will be a Grandma again in OCT!!! around the 29th! A Girl!!
I am sooo excited! That so makes up for the yucky year so far!!!
I was able to See a 3 D picture of her Friday!! WOW, Amazing!!!
It has made me so excited to really see her and to hold her!!!!
This new Baby will help HEAL my Broken Heart!!!!
I can not Wait!!!!

So what am I to learn from all this???
I have been wondering what it is all about?
I realize we all have problems...
But most people are not losing everyone
that they have loved! it is CRAZY!
Also, Then the Lord Blesses Me with
another Grandchild!!!
I am an emotional Mess! Both UP and Down!
I guess the real thing I need to always remember
is that he is always there for me!
We are all tested but he also Blesses us!
you know the cloud with the Silver lining!!!

Sorry about the whine! It has just been a Crazy Year.....
